Risk-Return Problems

- 7. Calculating Returns and Deviations Based on the following information, calculate the expected return and standard deviation for the two stocks. Find covariance and correlation between the two stocks.
- Answer: AB = 0.0103
- AB= 0.9953

Risk-Return Problems

- 10.Returns and Deviations Consider the following information:
- a. Your portfolio is invested 30 percent in A and C, and 40 percent
- in B. What is the portfolio expected return?
- b. What is the variance of this portfolio? The standard deviation?
- Answer:
- E(kP)= 0.08765
- 2P = 0.008338
- P = 0.091

Risk-Return Problems

- 30. Portfolio Returns and Deviations Given the following information on a portfolio of three stocks:
- a. If your portfolio is invested 30 percent in A and B and 40 percent
- in C, what is the portfolio expected return? The variance? The
- standard deviation?
- b. If the expected T-bill rate is 5.25 percent, what is the expected risk
- premium on the portfolio?
- c. If the expected inflation rate is 5 percent, what is the expected real
- return on the portfolio? What is the expected real risk premium on
- the portfolio?
- Answer: a) expected return=0.1875 standard deviation=0.2426
- b)premium=0.135
- c)portfolio expected real return=0.13095 real premium=0.12857

Risk-Return Problems

- 32. Analyzing a Portfolio You have $100,000 to invest in either
- Stock D, Stock F, or a risk-free asset. You must invest all of your
- money. Your goal is to create a portfolio that has an expected
- return of 10 percent and is only 60 percent as risky as the overall
- market. If D has an expected return of 20 percent and a beta of
- 1.5, F has an expected return of 15 percent and a beta of 1.15 and
- the risk-free rate is 5 percent, how much money will you invest in F?
- Answer: $66,667 investment in F

Risk-Return Problems

- 33. Systematic versus Unsystematic Risk Given the following information on stocks A and B:
- The market risk premium is 8 percent and the risk-free rate is 6 percent. Which stock has the most systematic risk? Which one has the most unsystematic risk? Which stock is “riskier”? Explain.
- Answer: A has more systematic risk
- B has more unsystematic risk
